How did you get sendmail to cooperate with dialup?

And sendmail is still not suited to being easy to configure.  sendmailconfig
is "not that bad" but it's also "not that good" if the intent is for a
person who doesn't know anything beyond that their smtp server is
mail.ispdomain.com about it.

ssmtp is the right solution it looks like, probably along with fetchmail and
either procmail (this would IMO be preferred) or deliver..
